700 . . . But Who's Counting ? ?
As I was getting ready to write this post, I noticed that as of my last post, I have blogged 700 times. Wowzer. But really, if I had been more faithful, I could have achieved that many in just two years, and the last I noticed, I began this blog in July of 2006 -- 5 years ago. (I actually had to go back and look because I forgot -- but I know it was the summer I went to Hawaii for the first time to help my daughter get settled in for graduate school.)
So I've averaged 140 posts / year, which really isn't terribly accurate because for one year I posted every day (minus about 3 times) during a challenge I had with some friends. Anyway . . . I'm sure these statistics aren't knocking your socks off, but I'm impressed that I've kept this up for 5 years.
So . . . . in light of that bit of trivia, here's my post for today. Actually, I made these images yesterday. I had an assignment to create some holiday images. I converted my sewing room into a temporary photo studio and this is what I came up with . . . so far. I have a few more ideas, but I needed to go for a bike ride today.
My temporary "studio" has north facing windows, but they're small and the light is uneven, so I had to use a flash. I took it off the camer and bounced it off the ceiling to avoid creating shadows. I think I've got the beginning of a Christmas card collection.
So there you have it, post #701. Merry Christmas!
